I'm talking about rational self-interest, which has nothing to do with optimism or naivete. If saner heads prevail, then they will negotiate in good faith. If they want to make an example, they'll offer a crap deal they know the UK will reject. My estimation is that the latter outcome will hurt the...

Also, TV shows invariably get stale when they've been running for over a decade. Maybe the new showrunner will help.
